Covid-19: Fully vaccinated Kiwis can skip MIQ from February
Fully vaccinated Kiwi travellers returning from all countries will no longer be required to stay in managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) starting from February 14, Covid-19 Response Minister Chris Hipkins has announced.
Those returning from Australia will get to bypass MIQ even earlier, starting from January 17.
Hipkins said there would still be carefully managed processes for recent arrivals, including a mandatory seven-day self-isolation period.
From April 30, New Zealand will start to re-open to all fully vaccinated travellers.
